Hilary Duff Responds To Child Sex Trafficking Allegations

Hillary Duff is shutting down reports involving one of her children. The former Disney star found herself trending on Twitter for baseless allegations regarding her participation in child sex trafficking. The rumors stemmed from a since-deleted Instagram post that showed Duff’s 8-year-old son, Luca Cruz, lying down without any clothes, and a subsequent Instagram video where the 32-year-old actress addressed the photo, which was eventually censored. “Someone pointed out on Instagram that I did a nude of him, which I did,” Duff said while showing off her family photos, “so we covered that up with [a] sticker.”

Countless fans immediately jumped to Duff’s defense, however a number of Twitter trolls continued to insinuate the picture in question was proof she was participating in child sex trafficking. Duff called the allegations disgusting and condemned the individual who started the rumor.

Duff shares Luca with her ex-husband Mike Comrie, whom she divorced in 2016. She also has a 1-year-old daughter, Banks Violet Bair, with husband Matthew Koma.

Amanda Bynes shared a social media update with fans, revealing that she recently completed treatment for issues related to social anxiety. 

In her first Instagram post in nearly ten weeks, Bynes detailed her plans for the future, sharing that she’s still engaged and is getting “back on track” with her schooling. Along with a selfie, she wrote, “Update: Getting my Bachelor’s degree from FIDM. Taking online classes, trying to get a 4.0 GPA. Looking forward to starting my online store in the future.”

Bynes added, “Spent the last 2 months in treatment. Worked on coping skills to help with my social anxiety that caused me to drop out of school months ago.” Amanda continued, noting that she now resides in transitional living and is continuing therapy. She closed the note by acknowledging that she is still engaged, and hopes that her followers are staying safe.

Bynes enrolled at the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising (FIDM) in 2014, with intentions to secure an Associate’s of Art degree in Merchandise Product and later a Bachelor’s degree. It’s unclear whether her plans remain the same, but Amanda had told PAPER magazine she wished to one day create her own fashion line, and also make a return to acting.

Slipknot’s Corey Taylor Completes Recording Solo Album In Quarantine

Slipknot and Stone Sour frontman Corey Taylor has confirmed that he finished recording his debut solo album.  While appearing on Lzzy Hale of Halestorm’s “Raise Your Horns” show on the We Are Hear podcast, Taylor shared that he had about 25 songs recorded for his solo effort. 

Said Taylor: “All the songs are things that I’ve written over the years but they didn’t really fit with either band. So it’s stuff that I’ve just kind of been sitting on,” he said. “And I’ve been kind of talking about doing a solo album anyway, and I was just, like, ‘This is the perfect time to do it.'”  Taylor said he worked with Stone Sour’s Christian Martucci, guitarist Zach Throne (from his live band Corey Taylor and Friends), bassist Jason Christopher and drummer Dustin Schoenhofer on the project.

CBS Picks Up John Krasinski’s YouTube Series ‘Some Good News’

Millions have tuned into John Krasinski’s show Some Good News on YouTube, which he started from his home during the pandemic. Now, Krasinski has announced he sold Some Good News to ViacomCBS, and he won’t be the host.

Krasinski started SGN after questioning why there isn’t a news network dedicated to good news only. He produced eight free episodes on YouTube, including an Office reunion/surprise wedding, a Hamilton performance, online graduations, and a virtual prom, all with famous surprise guests. 

Krasinski tweeted following the announcement: “Wow, who can believe when we started this thing together we all just wanted good news to be more fully represented in our everyday lives. And now? You quite literally ARE the good news! Thanks to you, SGN lives on, joining the ranks of this historic news network! See you all soon!” Krasinski will continue to serve as an executive producer and make cameos on SGN, but he won’t host; as of press time, a new host has not yet been named.

In the eighth — and possibly final — episode that aired last week, Krasinski announced that “we’re taking a break for now, but there is more to come! Stay tuned.”
